Ratzi is ok. But he does have respitory problems that the antibiotics didn't cure. So he's at risk for a stroke. I'm just surprised Eli died first, since he never had any health problems.

so sorry man, I'd be hurt if one of my rats died, I call one salt, and the other pepper, because of their fur colors, I hope your other one doesn't die any time soon.

Yea its so sad the life span of rats is so short. my 2 rats died about 3 or 4 years ago and they made such great pets. but damn they get sick so quickly and its expensive as hell to keep them alive, especailly for a pet that only costed 10 bucks to get

Your standerd Rat lives for about 4 years Tainted Ink. But I had no Idea they could have strokes. The more you know.... Anywho I guess it stands to reason that if a rat is fat enough it could. Mmmmm fat rats, thems good eating.


Actually rat meat isn't that bad.

The problem is that pet rats are weak! Those rats who lives in the sewers can leve much longer, they eat some many poisoning stuff that they get immunity! Try feeding your rats with trash!
